Small mantle clock crafted of gilt bronze, or ormolu, featuring an allegory of the gardener. He is surrounded by a rabbit and some gardening tools: a watering can, a shovel and a rake. The pastoral subject illustrates the taste of Jean-Jacques Rousseau's time for nature and country life. A fluted central column supports the white enameled dial, with Roman and Arabic numerals, and a rare second hand mechanism called "mouvement à trotteuse". The column is decorated with a laurel garland and the dial is topped by a vase. The clock rests on a base ornamented with floral motifs and lion head, above four claw feet.

Circa :1775
Dim: W: 5,9 in - D: 3,1in - H: 10,2in.
